By far the best car seat on the market! So easy to use and super comfortable.
Received my Maxi Cosi Vita Pro and my hubby fitted it. It was actually so easy to fit and is super easy to use.
My baby is super comfy and the fabrics and extra padding is just gorgeous!
She sleeps for the first time in the car in this seat and it makes travel to and from so much easier.
I actually had another brand recommended to me, but I decided to go with the Maxi Cosi brand and I honestly feel like I have chosen the perfect seat and brand for our child.
I am more than happy to recommend this seat or brand to anyone else wanting to try it.
Couldn't be happier with my purchase! Thank you Maxi Cosi.

If you're thinking of buying it, buy a seat protector
We bought this car seat because it came highly recommended and I loved the toddler chin supports. I don't hate it and I don't love it. There are some dumb design features.
I had to get it professionally installed in our Mitsubishi Pajero (twice - as the first time the professionals didn't install it correctly...) And now the newborn inserts are removed, my daughter did a poonami (you know the ones that go EVERYWHERE) and to wash the seat cover I have to uninstall the seat to pull it off - seriously dumb design. There's a YouTube video that shows what I mean.
*Chin support for toddlers
*Newborn inserts and newborn protection around the head are good.
*I like the ease of adjustment
*Good build quality
*Decent value for money...

Best car seat and the absolute best service!!
Purchased 2 of these car seats for my twins. They were super easy to install and my twins are obviously very comfortable in them. Initially I was going to purchase another brand but I definitely made the right choice with these seats. They are very easy to use and the extra padding and fabrics are of the highest quality. Whilst waiting for the stock to arrive I was offered a loan seat, which the Maxi Cosi rep delivered to a local installer who installed it for free. When my seats arrived, the rep delivered them to my home! Honestly, I have neve...r received customer service this good before!! I couldn’t recommend them more and it’s the kind of service that will having me raving about Maxi Cosi for years to come. I couldn’t be any happier with my purchase. Money well spent. Thank you Maxi Cosi!!

I love it
This is a fantastic product with good quality, worth buying. The headrest is just soft and cozy for my son. The iso-fix enhance the safety a lot. will definitely recommend to my friend.
Best car seat
The extra chin support is amazing! It supports our very small newborns neck perfectly. Didn’t think we would need it so almost bought a different car seat, So glad we didn’t

It just had more features
Honestly as soon as I saw (and felt) the headrest and the cheek guard things to help stop head flop - I was sold on this car seat. I liked the fact is was from a European brand. Having been in retail I know big stores are there to push their own brands so the fact this was independent and came from the inventor of car seats and honestly just feel the headrest of the others!!
I like the safety of the high sides and the different recliner settings.
I’m comfortable putting my child in and out of the seat. Easy to loosen and tighten the harnesses. Adjustable side head rest is also a great feature to this seat.
Purchased in August 2019.

You will regret buying this seat
We bought this seat as we were told this is the safest one on the market. I'm struggling to see how this could be true. His head was not supported at all as a newborn and it is still not (he is now 9 months old). The sides are so high that you can barely see your baby from the side once you've somehow managed to put him in the seat. I have a Landcruiser so my car is a bit higher than a seddan and I had a c-section so the design made it very difficult for me as I had to lift him above my shoulders and literally throw him in there above the side ...and then could not see him to buckle him in... It was so painful and took me so long every time. I was dreading every single time I had to leave the house and avoided having to leave my house and take the car for the first 4 months because of how painful and hard it is to use. I am not exaggerating when I say this seat has made my post-partum journey an absolute nightmare. This has isolated me so much. Who knew a seat could do that to you?...My friend has a Britax in her 4x4 which I tried and this was so easy to use. The sides are not too high and you can actually see what you are doing once baby is in the seat. We paid premium price for this seat and this has only caused us problems...DO NOT BUY THIS SEAT, you will 100% regret it!

I purchased this car seat as it was recommended by some of my friends with children, love the design of the seat it’s so compact whilst rear facing and it has all the extra safety features to help keep my baby safe. Such great design with the head rest that offers air protection and also has chin support. Another bonus is the magnetic harness holders!! Super easy to use as well as everything is easily adjustable. Would definitely recommend to other first time parents.
Purchased in July 2021.
Highly recommend this one!
This carseat is definitely worth the price! Starting from the cool magnetic harnesses, the G cell protection on the outside and the air protection on the head's side made it a quick choice for parents like me who prioritize the comfort and safety of their little ones. The additional chin rest support feature is amazing. It was such an easy buy for us as Maxi Cosi is a trusted brand and I will definitely recommend it to anyone whose looking out for a car seat for their newborn to 4 years old. Go for it!!!
So comfortable! And Cosy
Loved the Service in Babyland and loved the comfort and the GCell technology stood out for me to purchased this seat and also had girlfriend purchase one 7 months ago and loved it!!
Purchased in June 2021 for $539.
Love this car seat!
We chose this car seat for it's safty features, head support (when baby is older) and deep, snug feel.
We love our seat so much that we have chose to not only buy a 2nd seat for Bub on the way, but also bought the maxi-cosi Capsule for the first for 6 months.
We did have a few issues, magnets not working like display in shop, also the adjustment strap getting very stuck an fraying, which has now been addressed and the design has been improved.
This car seat has really worked for my family, especially just coming home from a holiday after using...a hired seat, top of range, different brand. It has only further instilled that we made the right choice. I would like to thank two Ladies in particular, Katie (I hope that's her name) working in baby bunting Cannington WA, who was so helpful and went above and beyond, also Melissa from Dorel who was part of making the unexpected happen. Both beautiful and fantastic to communicate with.

Do not buy this seat, there are design flaws and safety concerns.
I was sold on the idea of it being the safest seat available on the market by baby bunting staff however once it was installed and we started using it the design flaws started to show.
1st design flaw, the tether buckle itself is too small for the belt, with only 2 months of use (We were using a capsule before) the tether has started to show signs of degradation. Whoever was in charge of sourcing the buckle needs to learn how to use a ruler.
2nd design flaw (major), with the infant installed, my son's head is always bent forward. I can't imag...ine this being very good for his breathing. If you read the other reviews, other parents are facing the same problem as well. The head/neck support only works once the child is older (taller). Avoid!!!!! I regret buying this seat, I should have done my research instead of listening to a sales pitch from sales people.
